Sea Pink

Here's another little flower that starts to bloom about this time of year but continues to brighten our rocky sea shores right through to autumn. It's called Sea Pink or Thrift. I suspect it gets the latter name from its remarkable ability to thrive in the tiniest cracks of large boulders or in places where there is about as much soil as you would find under your fingernails after a day's gardening. This vigorous clump is growing on the eastern side of Clover Point, overlooking Ross Bay.

They are very pretty, I don't think I have ever seen these blooms before.
